GOIN' DOWN SLOW

Live 13 Jan 1970 version


I feel you breathin' real low
I feel your heart beatin', well a beatin' real slow
Well I oughta be leavin', but mama you got it so I just can't get up and go
Well this makes us even, makes us even woman now that you know
Woman you know
Well I set the fire and you're the first to go
It's getting higher and I'm gonna watch
I watch it goin' down slow
Said I'm gonna get up and watch it goin' down slow

I said woman you made the thorns and projections
And she comes with a long long list, mass of directions
Any man is full, full of bloody dissections
And she leaves behind a body of long long list of human rejections
Yes she does
Whoa she does
Yeah she does
Well I set the fire and you're the first to go
It's getting higher and I wanna yeah
I wanna watch it goin' down slow
You're gonna see me watch it goin' down slow

Well I feel you breathin' real low
I feel your heart beatin', baby beatin' woman so slow
Well I oughta be leavin', woman got herself a man can't go
This makes us even, this makes us even, wo-woman you know
???, ???, ??? yeah
Come and get it
Well she's the best little woman I ever seen around
Just the kind of little woman that puts'em down
The finest little woman in the whole damn town, and the prettiest thing I've seen
I'm goin' down
She come and goin' down
She come and goin' down
I never wanna see this town, whoa
Yeah whoa, gypsy woman got that spell on me
Well I saw it, gypsy woman got a spell on me
Oh I know she get it higher, ohhh

I set the fire and you're the first to go
It's getting higher and I watch
I watch it movin' down slow
Well I watch it, watch it goin' down, I said goin' slow

Goin' down slow
Goin' down slow
Goin' down slow
Goin' down slow
